Dre is wonderful. Such a fun and upbeat server. Genuinely loves what he is doing. Salads were delicious. Never had one that wasn’t really good. Brownie sundae is perfect to share.

Due to Covid, we dined outside under a tent so the ambiance is not really gradable. But, walking through the former mill to get to our table, the interior looked inviting and cozy. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly and efficient. The wine list was extensive and the cocktail menu had many mouthwatering options. We tried the fried green tomatoes and fried oysters appetizers which were both delicious. Except for the hamburger on the kids menu, all of our entrees did not disappoint. The Shrimp and Grits and the Crab Cakes were outstanding. No room for dessert...overall, an excellent dining experience for those of us visiting from New England!

The food was decent, but our waiter was super distracted. He forgot to put in our appetizer order so it came out with our food order. We also had to ask for extra napkins twice. There were times that he walked past our table to follow up on requests and even share a laugh with the tables around us. Nothing wrong with that, as long as his other tables were taken care of but we weren't.

We had dinner outside since it's COVID and they have a nice set up. We definitely had space between other tables and our server wore a mask the whole time and kept a respectful distance. The service was incredible. We went for our anniversary and the menu's said "Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs F..." The food was delicious and plenty and the dessert was great. They're cocktails were delicious and they have an extensive whisky/bourbon list which my husband loved. Definitely would love to go back again!

This was a great a great restaurant! We spend the day wine tasting at several of the local wineries and we wanted just a very good meal (which includes very good service) at a reasonable price. Tuscarora Mill did not disappoint. My friends shared a hamburger that was divided for them and I got a Spanish seafood stew. Both were prepared excellently with amazing taste. The service was also impeccable. After a day of wine tasting, we drank a lot of water. Our water goblets were never empty. My wife and I did share a glass of wine which the server did provide in 2 glasses. This was a very good wine and a good price point. On our next trip to NOVA, we will be back!

Being outside was great & tents will extend the season. However tents do make the noise level greater inside.

My friend and I enjoyed a beautifully sunny day and lunch in the outdoor marque at Tuskies. Our waiter was informative, knowledgable and patient. We both had salads and they were delicious as well as filling, we even brought some home.

We had a late lunch Sunday. We started our meal the hot Crab & Bacon Dip it was delicious and just enough to share. My husband decided to try the Meatloaf with Whipped Potatoes, Broccoli, Roasted Tomato, & Mushroom Gravy. He said it tasted fine but the meatloaf was a little flat. I had the House-Made Pastrami Reuben that was Loaded High served on Marbled Rye. It was very delicious.

Had a Saturday brunch and Samantha our server was very accommodating & friendly. Drinks were on point by the bartender- Ideal Husband was so delicious - had to order a second one! Food was great our party of four all pleased with their choices - shrimp & pimento grits, fried chicken and the pork chop in white pepper gravy was ginormous (big enough for two people!) The calamari was perfectly fried all agreed as were the classic southern dish of fried green tomatoes. Only the ambiance on the indoor side porch lacks a bit - great for large parties but no real ambiance to room is why I gave it a four rating. Overall, great place to dine.

We went for our anniversary dinner and the food was amazing! We had menus in our names, which was a very nice touch. Originally, when we arrived - our note about the request for indoor dining was not given to the restaurant, but they were able to accommodate us, which was relieving! Excellent meal, social distancing was acceptable in the resturant and the table service was amazing!

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary dinner at Tuskie’s. Ken, our waiter, provided excellent food/drink/wine advice. Excellent sea bass, duck, mushroom soup, wedge salad and bread pudding. Nicely paired with wine and more appropriate sides. Looking forward to going back!
